[Suggestion] groups visibility

  • Improved client context menu to filter inaccessible groups and permission
    related tools.

Could be a setting on the client or on the server so the user if he want can see what server groups are there ( it would be useful if e.g. a user want a game icon and see what he can choose from).

The server I manage also used the inaccessible groups being grayed out but visible as a way to organize groups in combination with i_group_sort_id for the "Set Server Group right click context menu. Now admins have a harder time quickly finding the needed tag since the list is all blended together.

Example of our group headers (note screenshot is from server groups window):

It’s similar in setup to the below thread on the old forum:

It would be great to have this feature back, or possibly add a group type for headers or a permission to make a group exempt from being hidden.

edit note: clarified the suggestion/feedback is for the right click “Set Server Group” menu on a user.

    This change that happened in 3.3.0 was displeasing. This improvement made it to where you are unable to see the Server groups you don’t have access to. The reason I think this should have not been changed is that it removes the ability to organize and let people see what server groups they can get with out giving them perms to modify all the groups and ruin the permissions on the server.
    Or add the ability for this to be a settings in the options menu. The ability to show server groups that you can not assign or disable server groups you can not assign.

I realize this may not be done, but I 2nd this suggestion.
I run a gaming community, & prior to this latest client update, I utilized the “grey” server groups to allow for the server groups of my server to be organized & it allowed my community staff/ managers to find them easier.
Ex: They have to assign someone to a command staff group? Group is under “Administration/ Command”, etc.

In my humble view, a permission similar to i_group_filter [CheckBox] (Example) would be enough if checked, the group would be filtered for only those who have the power to assign it, unmarked, the group would be visible to everyone. Simple.

As it is, it forces us to have to leave the group open to be added to someone or not.
